Hi there! I can tell you some family lore about the Keasy family. I have no idea if there is any truth at all. But supposedly a Keasy boy in Bern Switzerland wanted to marry a young lady. The father was furious and the boy had to "get out of town!. Amother, still in Bern area, says he was married or engaged and she refused to leave with him. So he went along up the Rhine to Germany, where the Paletimes were badly treated. They were promised land, but were really slaves. So they moved on through Philadelphia to Montgomery county and some to Lancaster and York counties to the west. Otherwise I know nothing more than you do, and these stories should be taken with a grain of salt. I have really tried to find out more. We lived in Philadelphia, and I did a huge amount of research on my family trees. But the Pennsylvania Germans are really a mystery to me. My connection to the family went down to Julia (my great grandmother) who was child #15. Her oldest sister was 26! Those Keasey women were amazing! Well, that's more than I know. Liz
